FOSPA WHITE LOGOAnyone visiting Sutton Park cannot help but want to protect this wonderful amenity for future generations.

The Friends of Sutton Park Association has been very successful in doing this for 60 years. FOSPA was founded in 1950 in response to suggestions at the time that parts of Sutton Park could be made available for building on. Today, as a National Nature Reserve the future of Sutton Park has probably never been safer. FOSPA, affiliated to The Conservation Volunteers, concentrates resources on funding voluntary conservation projects in Sutton Park.

Our Conservation Team is made up of volunteers who work in partnership with the Sutton Park Ranger Service. All the work undertaken is based upon careful management plans drawn up between Natural England (previously English Nature) and other qualified ecological experts.

We also have two representatives on the Park Advisory Committee where we are able to put forward our views on all matters relating to the running of the Park. Thus ensuring that our voice is heard and our opinions are given consideration at the highest consultative level.

To show you care and want to help preserve our National Nature Reserve you can become a member, it is not expensive, cost of annual membership is only £6.00 per year, full details are set out on our membership form and as you can see it represents very good value.

We also organize a wide variety of social events and conducted walks throughout the year – put on slide shows for local community groups – and produce a regular news letter for our members.

So don’t delay – join today ! All the money we raise is used to help Sutton Park.
